the libyan air force and no longer exists as a fighting force. the senior u.s. commander says that troops loyal to gaddafi are still violating a u.n. resolution 1973. misrata is besieged by government tanks and artillery. mike will reject reports. >> characteristically the finance -- define it, colonel gaddafi on the first night of bombing. he said that those attacking libya would end up in the dustbin of history. colonel gaddafi has pledged there would be no surrender, and this on another night with a burst of anti-aircraft fire. from the american secretary of state hillary clinton, a suggestion that efforts might be under way to look for an exit strategy. >> i am not aware that he personally has reached out, but i know people allegedly on his behalf up and reaching out. that is why i say this is a very dynamic situation. >> be diplomatic strategy has been to convince the libyan leader to take another course. these pictures provide more insight into the military reality confronting him and his forces. it shows as helicopters taking off for an operation at night with american ships involv
about in 2010 there were 14 near misses at reactor sites in the u.s. alone those could be major issues and relatively minor. they were considered near misses and two of them were security breaches. which is, you know, it's classified exactly what happened. but the fact is that you never hear about the near misses. you only hear about when something happens. >> juan: you think the japanese government has been lying? >> i don't know. it's very difficult to say. is tepco pulling a bp and saying hey, it's really not as bad as we said? >> juan: that's tokyo electric power. >> yeah. are they pulling the same thing we saw last year with the bp oil spill? it's fine, it's fine, it's fine. it's telling that the u.s. military came and said hey we would like to clear a 50-mile radius off of this. u.s. experts both international and u.s. nuclear experts came in and said that i mean, that's very telling. >> juan: richard, what do you say to that? this is a signal this is the end of nuclear power in the world. it's just too dangerous. it might be a small chance of a problem, but if there is a problem
in on our own. we should be going in under the u.n., not the u.s. flag. we shouldn't attack a country this didn't attack us first and shouldn't have boots on the ground. from that mouth, this is sort of the perfect way to go. we go in not under the u.s. flag but under the u.n. flag. we go in on the humanitarian mission, short-term limited thing, no boots on the ground. i think that going in, he did it the right way. my big question is how long are we going to be there? what really is our mission? i think the -- it is really, really fuzzy whether it is just to protect the rebels or to get gadhafi out. we are saying both things. how much is it going to cost? it depends on how soon we get out. if we could turn this over to the french government or to somebody else, as they say they are going to, in a couple of days, get out of there, then i think this is going to be a successful operation. if it drags on and gadhafi stays in power, it is another loser. >> pat buchanan, what are the odds if we are being realistic we will be out as the president had said in a mere matter of days, turning i
the democrats and republicans. >> reporter: so far the u.s. is taking the lead role on launching those attacks. this is video from moammar gadhafi's compound, from what appears to be crews missile strikes. top obama administration officials are going to great emphasis to -- great efforts to say the coalition is minimal. >> we'll have a minimal role. >> reporter: but some democrats and republicans are expressing concern that the mission in libya is not defined and there's no end plan. senator john kerry says the goal is not to remove moammar gadhafi from power. >> i would not call it going to war. this is a very limited operation that is geared to save lives. >> reporter: now, oakland congresswoman barbara lee joined a call with other liberal house democrats over the weekend, questioning the constitutionality of the operation. they say congress should have been involved. reporting live from washington, d.c., alison burns, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you, alison. 7:17. president obama, meanwhile, continues his five-day tour of latin america with a stop in chile. the president is expected to ar

anything. >>alisyn: and he called it racist saying the u.s. and others are colonizing libya. muammar qaddafi is claiming there is a cease-fire and then, yet, going on, to say all of this stuff, they are massacring us and imposing a no-fly zone after the other and one military attack after another. this is hatred and racism. >> there are fears of terrorism in the united states in the allied power that will take on this effort in libya and that has been made clear by the white house. we have to also understand based upon muammar qaddafi's history of being allied with the greatest terrorists of the 20th century and the strongman dictators there will be a military response and we see it today, obviously not keeping the cease-fire. >> we will bring you the latest from libya all morning and we have a few other headlines. starting with this news alert. video giving us a look at the containment efforts going on at the nuclear sites in japan, spraying the reactors with water to keep temperatures down and stop a melt down. the real goal to restore the electric cooling pump. workers connected a
